Do you really need money? Or is it something else?

Have you ever had the experience of looking at your bank account, looking at your salary, or looking at your savings and thinking: I need money! Perhaps the numbers aren’t what you’d like them to be. Maybe there’s more month than money round about the 30th or 31st. Whatever financial pickle you might have yourselfContinue Reading

What is seduction? The new law of attraction with Burlesque Star Kitty Cavalier (Glimpse TV)

If you are human, there’s probably been at least one time in your life when you found something about yourself unloveable. Maybe you’ve found your belly to be too jiggly. Maybe you snort when you laugh. Maybe you’re dyslexic or have a terrible sense of direction. Maybe you spend money impulsively and wish you didn’t.Continue Reading

An open letter to my mom.

I was inspired to write this by Nisha Moodley and Linda Siversten who both posted beautiful tributes  to their mothers and to Mother’s Day at large this week. (That’s my mom and me on the left.) My mom recently told me about working with her lawyer regarding a course she was teaching called Lightening theContinue Reading

People showed up here for what you have to say — so say it.

The clock was dangerously nearing 12:30pm. Tummies were grumbling. Butts were getting sore from sitting too long. Blood sugar levels were dipping. My talk, Money: A Love Story, was supposed to end the morning session. But the audience’s (and my own) need for a break were obvious. So I whispered to the organizer: “I don’t haveContinue Reading

Put down the flail.

Right before the holidays I made a few financial decisions that I wish I hadn’t made. Nothing catastrophic. Just some money that went places I wish it hadn’t, in retrospect. It’s made for a tighter start of 2013 than I prefer. Confession: I’ve been beating myself up about it for weeks. While traveling in CostaContinue Reading

I’m so excited to share my mom’s newest book and her first book written for children, Beautiful Girl: Celebrating the Wonders of Your Body. This book is designed for little girls to learn how magical and perfect their bodies are. And it’s also designed for women of all ages to be reminded. At some point withinContinue Reading

Sometimes we have to break our own rules.

I’m trying something new this year. Instead of making a whole long list of goals that usually morphs into what feels like a to do list, I’m picking a word for the year. This year my word is GRACE. A quick story of GRACE that happened a few weeks ago: I was asked to beContinue Reading

Something I’ve been struggling with lately

Ever feel like you’re having a bit of an identity crisis? Entrepreneurs are encouraged to create a 30-second elevator pitch. We’re challenged to minutely identify exactly what we do and exactly who we do it for. This is something I’ve been having a lot of trouble with lately. Has boiling who you are into aContinue Reading

a fool proof way to figure out what to spend your money on

I’m sitting here on the train from Seattle, WA to Portland, OR. I spent an extra $17 to get a Business Class ticket and it was way worth it. Nice leather seats. Wireless. Plenty of leg room. Luxury. I finished the first draft of my book, Money: A Love Story (Hay House 2013) this week.Continue Reading

Herd’s the Word

As human beings we are herd creatures. We crave connection, community, and a sense of belonging. Being part of a herd helps us feel heard (I couldn’t help myself) and helps us hear ourselves better too. Part of this is biological: back in the day when there were saber-toothed tigers after us our survival dependedContinue Reading
